Nobody does it better ...'A deliciously self-mocking autobiography.' Sydney Morning Herald Mention the name Roger Moore and James Bond almost inevitably follows. After all, he dominated the big screen as the world's most famous spy for seven missions, more than any other 007. But before joining Her Majesty's secret service Roger Moore was already an international star thanks to another unforgettable signature role as 'The Saint', one of the most successful syndicated series in television history. And who could forget the rakish playboy Lord Brett Sinclair in 'The Persuaders'? In My Word is My Bond he looks back on a brilliant career and life with characteristic wit, from his childhood memories of London to his Hollywood career, his battle with prostate cancer and the inspiration he has gained from working for UNICEF. Punctuated throughout with anecdotes about friends such as Noel Coward, David Niven, Cary Grant, Richard Harris, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, Michael Caine and Sean Connery, this frank and funny memoir is as charming and disarming as the man himself. And, as his millions of fans already know, nobody does it better.Read Less

My Word is My Bond
This was a gift to a friend who knows a lot about movies. She plunged into it as soon as she opened the package, and was lost to the rest of the company, except for the occasional gust of laughter. Huge success!
